Let the festivities commence at Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens. Bringing together a collection of period performers, from military soldiers from Wellington’s army, master musicians and even a camera obscura are all gathered at Belsay alongside the Costumes from Austen display of replica regency TV and film costumes inside the Hall. Each day combines demonstrations of Regency tea rituals as well as displays of the Regency underworld with a Highwayman hiding out. Redcoat soldiers will practice their drill and musicians give us a songs and music of the time. A delightful weekend evoking the time of Jane Austen’s books.
